Carolina Thermascan – A New Vision of Thermography
Infrared Thermal Imaging is the use of an ultra-sensitive heat detection camera to observe minute changes in skin temperature which can provide clues toward understanding the processes of the human body. This procedure is able to detect subtle, vascular and physiological changes that if left unattended may over time lead to degenerative disruptive diseases.
Carolina Thermascan is now here to provide a New Vision of Thermography, being able:
- To provide superior quality infrared imaging of the breast, neuromuscular system, dental, thyroid and sinus regions as a screening tool to better understand problems associated with these areas.
- To educate patients and the public in the applications of thermal imaging to promote early intervention as a way to achieve optimal health.
- To empower individuals to become proactive in their lifestyle choices to maximize their wellbeing.
Carolina Thermascan – Prevention through Discovery
It is important to be aware that thermography is not a standalone diagnostic device. It does not replace any other diagnostic procedures but is an adjunctive screening tool for the purpose of providing individuals and healthcare providers information about the body’s physiologic health. Thermography is appropriate as a safe and reliable screening device to detect changes that, if left unattended, could possibly progress into a late stage disease that can then be detected by other types of imaging devices.
Most all of us would rather be informed about potential problems before they become serious and require more aggressive intervention. Infrared Thermal Imaging is one of the most effective prevention tools available, able to provide thermographic screening as an adjunct to other clinical diagnostic procedures.
Whether referred by a health care provider or sought out individually, clients will be provided with a detailed report prepared by an experienced, licensed physician to include:
- Files containing all scanned images with regional and spot temperature details
- Side to side and other appropriate temperature comparisons
- Comparison of scans to any previously performed scans
- Recognition of suspicious patterns of change
Attention to recognizable patterns of surface temperature changes as they relate to:
- Cardiovascular Health
- Dental Health
- Sinus and allergies
- Thyroid health
- Breast health
- Abdominal health
- Muscular/skeletal stress or injury
Clinical possibilities and recommendations for further evaluation
Recommendations for follow-up based on the interpreter’s experience and AAT Guidelines.
Highly effective in detecting breast abnormalities and helps identify risk factors that may predispose women to breast cancer.
Involves no direct contact, carries no risk or side effects. It is pain-free, non-invasive, with no radiation exposure.
Obtains a fingerprint of breast characteristics that should remain the same in future scans enabling regular monitoring.
In recent years, thermal imaging technology has greatly improved, offering a high-sensitivity tool that can supplement mammography.
